Studio MDHR had released Cuphead in 2017, and the 2D side-scroller based on old-timey cartoons was a hit with gamers. Now five years later, Netflix has offered us a first look at the animated The Cuphead Show!.

Netflix Drops First Trailer for The Cuphead Show!

Check it out:

Based on the award-winning video game, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! follows the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman.

With the original Cuphead game staying very true to the feel of old cartoons, it looks like the series is going to be doing the same, and then some. While the world and the characters look like they came right out of the 30s, the humor is a bit on the more modern side. We should also expect a different story with the series, but with the base premise of Cuphead and Mugman making a deal with the devil still intact.

The game has also been applauded for its ragtime inspired music, and it would be great if the show could use some of the musical cues from the original soundtrack. Why fix what isn’t broken?

With Netflix’s Arcane bringing a renewed interest to League of Legends, we should expect The Cuphead Show! to do the same for the original game. While cartoons have come a long way now, we are seeing some kind of renewed interest in the classics, what with shows like Over the Garden Wall and even anime like the ones from director Masaaki Yuasa.

The Cuphead Show! premieres on Netflix on Feb. 18. Cuphead is now playable for PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4.
